MSNBC admits it was “factually wrong” when it aired the above maps which “closely resemble propaganda disseminated by anti-Israel organizations” during an “analysis” piece:
The cable news network has been fighting off criticism after it aired the graphics and analysis, including a map linked to conspiracy groups branded as anti-Semitic, that portrayed Israel as existing on territory expropriated from Palestine.
The graphics garnered criticism from pro-Israel advocates and has now prompted the network to acknowledge that the graphics were highly misleading.
“In an attempt to shed light on the geographic context of the Israeli-Palestinian issue, we aired a map that was factually wrong,” the spokesperson said on Sunday.
Let me fix that for you, MSNBC: “In an attempt to inflame our Progressive viewers with their daily dose of Jew-hatred, we aired a map that was factually wrong. We regret getting called out for it.”
CORRECTION: The use of the word “embarrassing” in the headline implies a fact not in evidence.
We regret the error.
